Check your temperature with a mirror

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2011

NEC Avio Infrared Technologies have just released a new thermometer that can tell your temperature without you even having to touch it. No more sticking a thermometer into your mouth. The Thermo Mirror SX-01 will easily spot people who have a fever. As an example, if an office is worried about the spread of flu in the building, this device can quickly and easily check the temperature of a person before they enter the building. If they have a high temperature, they may not be allowed in, thus keeping the office healthier.

Just look into the mirror, and it will automatically measure the person’s temperature using infrared thermography. The Thermo Mirror will cost about $1,200.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

Reevu has improved their MSX1 helmet and at least one of them has landed in a reviewer’s hands, or head. The helmet uses a mechanical mechanism instead of rear-view cameras. According to webBikeworld, it functions just like a car’s rear-view mirror, with the small mirror in front resting just outside the rider’s line of sight.

They also say that the helmet is “built like a tank,”. The rear-view system is just icing on the cake of an otherwise already superb helmet. Needless to say, this could save some lives.

Motherboard Mirror / nerd reflector

Motherboard Mirror nerd reflectorCheck out this mirror inspired by circuit boards. It looks pretty cool and retro in an 80s kind of way. Sadly this mirror will only ever know nerd faces on it’s shining surface. Non nerds show up distorted like some carnival funhouse mirror.

But the coolest aspect of this mirror is what they won’t tell you when you order. If you are the one true nerd, you will have no reflection at all. Like a vampire. That is how you will know that you are the chosen one. All that will be left to do is step through into another world…

Gold-plated Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Gold-plated Mercedes-Benz C63 AMGIt’s nice to know that some people are having some fun living it up in this recession, while the rest of us count and sort our pennies. This is a gold-mirror-finish Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG from the Bling on Wheels Show, at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. It’s just plain crazy like everything else in Dubai.

If you drive this thing during the day, everyone will know where you are thanks to the trail of innocent onlookers who were blinded by the light bouncing off it. No word on how much it cost the owner to completely bling this thing out.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watchYou don’t see a watch that features the mug of Leonardo da Vinci everyday. It’s inspired by his backwards writing or “mirror writing”, which some believe to be a code. Others think he was just punking people in the future. The more likely reason is that Leonardo was left handed and preferred to pull a pen as opposed to pushing it across the page in order to prevent the ink from smudging.

And just like the writing in his notebooks, this watch does everything backwards. The numbers on the faceplate are written and listed backwards, and the hour and minute hands move counter-clockwise as well. That should make it a real pain to tell what time it is. The price is $36. That’s not $63 backwards.

Violet mir:ror connects everything using RFID

Posted in rfid by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2008

Violet mir:ror connects everything using RFIDIf everyday objects just aren’t connected to the digital world in the way you would like, then check this out. This device uses RFID technology to connect all of your crap to the digital world. You know, cuz life should be more digital. Violet is the company that makes those strange Nabaztag USB rabbits. Now they are offerring “Mir:ror”, a small round USB gadget that interfaces all of your belongings and your computer. For example, let’s say you put an RFID tag on your umbrella, despite your umbrella’s protests that RFID technology is the mark of the beast. Just wave the umbrella over your Mir:ror, and your computer will display the current weather stats. Tag your iPod and have it take you to current Apple news etc. The connections seem pretty infinite, only limited by your imagination.

Pretty sweet tool if you ask me. Just don’t be waving panties(Or worse) over the thing to pull up porn. That’s just weird. Mir:ror can instantly identify many objects with built-in RFID tags, but you can tag almost anything you want with their identification stamps. Violet’s web site lets you set up all your devices and applications to work with Mir:ror. Violet expects to release Mir:ror in the US on October 27th, with a $69.99 starter kit.

Magic Message Mirror home security system

Posted in Security by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2008

Magic Message Mirror home security systemThe Magic Message Mirror is for those who want to combine their love of Disney with home security. Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the safest one of all? You will be, of course. The portrait in the photo above is actually a home security device.

Just wire it into your existing home security system and it will appear to be an ordinary mirror until it’s triggered by someone walking in front of the beam. That’s when the scary apparition appear just like in the Snow White movie, yelling prerecorded phrases you’ve recorded. The mirror is actually a 30 inch LCD display with a CGI character known as “Basil of the Mirror”. I’m not sure it would scare a thief enough to leave and give up his life of crime. It would probably scare him for a few seconds until he realized what’s going on. Then they would likely steal the mirror, because it’s cool.

Rear view GPS mirror

Some features include : GPS navigation system, SD/MMC memory card slot, Stylus pen, LED backlight, 1300mAh Li-Ion battery, Reverse gear sensor, Camera, Bluetooth connectivity.
